Flight Search Engines
CheapOair We recently discovered CheapOAir and the key is to sign up for their newsletter. They are constantly sending out discount coupons and codes and last minute deals which is great for flexible or spontaneous travelers.
Cheapair We’ve found some pretty great deals on CheapAir for multi-city international flights and their customer service is really good. We saved a good few hundred dollars with them on our flight back from Asia to Costa Rica with several stops in between.
Kayak They are a well known search engine for good reason – they search through a large variety of airlines. Definitely recommended as a starter for flights in the US.
Hotels Combined Excellent service and reputation, we have found exclusive deals in Hotels Combined without a doubt one of the best booking companies online. Their user’s interface is very friendly and easy to use.
Hotels.com is one of our favorite search engines when it comes to lodging. For every 10 nights you book on Hotels.com you get one free. They have a wide variety of options and we’ve constantly booked through them as they offer some of the lowest prices.
Agoda The go to site for booking accommodation in Asia. They list hotels on there that you can’t find in other search engines offering much more competitive rates. Definitely use this when you’re traveling in Asia, we’ve found prices on Agoda to be even half as much as what was offered on other sites.
Airbnb An alternative to hotels for those who want a different experience. We’ve used AirBnB in Asia and love it. More homey, a more local experience and great value. It’s also a fun way to meet other people and locals. Get $20 off your booking here.
